Manuel Sanchez. He’s my brother's best friend. He’s the one who’s always there for my family when my brother can’t be. He’s the man I’ve been in love with since I was old enough to know what love is. After years of secretly hoping he would look at me twice, Manny is mine. This should be the happiest time of my life. It’s summer. I’m happy, healthy; and in love.
Manny and I are trying to give in to what’s meant to be between us, but with so much going wrong in our lives, it’s hard to hold on to one another.
